first of all in your build.

there is no reason to play black

there is no reason to have that many black sources for your 3 black spells.

you have quite a few bad cards in there...

sangrite surge is horrible, its a sorcery...meaning the can just block.....or even worse instant removal in response.

savage hunger is going to be cycled 98% of the time anyways...so play something thats actually good.

I hate gift of the gargantuan.


i wouldve built this deck as an esper deck splashing red for the removal and iguanar.

you have alot of good fliers. 2 esper battlemage (by far the best one imo..)

also the straight naya deck (without any of the black. since its not worth splashing(except for maybe thrinax off of just the tri lands and no swamps or grixix pano, otherwise it make you deck less reliable if u cant cast your spells as soon as possible.

you can cut all the swamps, the grixix pana the tri lands and just run basics with the 1 pana

cut the black cards , the obelisk, the sangrite surge, the hunger, and add


1 welkin guide
1 sighted-caste sorcerer
1 naturlize
2 bant battlemage
1 angelsong (better the hunger and still cycles and its effect can be game winning if they go for the sigil blessing alpha strike.)

Your mana base is wrong in so many ways, not that you can really have a great mana base with the cards you have but you can still do better than that, you do not appear to have paid any attention to your colour distribution when creating that mana base, in future you need too.

5 Island
4 Swamp
1 Mountain
3 Plain

2 [ALA] Esper Battlemage
1 [ALA] Hissing Iguanar

1 [ALA] Tidehollow Sculler
1 [ALA] Dregscape Zombie

2 [ALA] Tidehollow Strix

Ya you should clearly be in blue here. As for your deck, you played a total of 3 2 drops that require 2 coloured mana in a 4 colour deck...there is absolutely no way you are going to resolve them turn 2. Sculler is ok after turn 2, as is steward, but rip-clan crasher simply isnt good if you dont play him on turn 2. I dont really want to get into an actual build, but blue is pretty much a definate.
